Orphan Photo #73

Orphan 0073

This lovely couple hails from the Cresco, Iowa area.  Unfortunately there is no identifying information.

Given the gold beveled edge, it is possible that this cabinet card was produced between 1885 and 1892.  The imprint reads:  Borlaug, Cresco, Iowa.

Orphan Photo #71

Orphan 0071-A Orphan 0071-B

This lovely lady appears to be from the Rochester, New York area.  Unfortunately there is no identifying information.

This cabinet card, which uses a dark green color and scalloped edges, is likely from the 1890s.  The imprint on the front reads:  Taylor, 152 East Main St, Rochester, N.Y.

The photographer is likely John W. Taylor, who is listed as a photographer in the 1899 Rochester City Directory at the 152 E. Main address.

Orphan Photo #69 & #70

Orphan 0069-A Reynolds

Orphan 0070-A Reynolds

Orphan 0069-B Reynolds

(Kate?) Reynolds

Orphan 0070-B Reynolds


These two CDVs hail from Boston, Massachusetts.  They look like they were taken at the same time, and since Reynolds (albeit with questions marks) is found on both, it is quite possible they are sister and brother.  Given the style of the CDV, they were likely taken between 1880 and 1905.  Without more specifics, it’s hard to say who exactly they are and there are too many Reynolds families in the Boston area.

The imprint reads:  Holland, 611 Washington St., Boston.
